Symantec VirtualStore - (v. 6.0) - license - 1 Product Details
Running mission-critical applications on virtual machines in production environments has become more mainstream as server virtualization has gained momentum. However, as easy as it can be to deploy virtual machines ad hoc, the challenge most organizations are now facing is around storage utilization and performance in virtual infrastructures. Virtual machine sprawl introduces its own set of challenges. Increase in storage consumption will have a dramatic impact on already level IT budgets. Deploying virtual machines is not as efficient when deployed in the thousands. And from the end-user's perspective, when a large number of users log into their desktops simultaneously, performance can suffer dramatically.The return on investment on your server virtualization initiatives can be lost if your storage network and configuration is not optimal. Symantec VirtualStore is a highly scalable, clustered NAS solution for VMware virtual machine management. VirtualStore solves the storage challenges of virtual infrastructures with features that provide rapid provisioning of servers and virtual desktops, and efficient cloning and boot up of virtual machines, all through VMware vCenter, their management console.SYMANTEC BUYING PROGRAMS: ACADEMICSymantec Buying Programs are designed to streamline the purchase of Symantec security and availability software as well as support and maintenance services.
